The weather this summer has been atrocious, but one flower in the garden seems to have benefited. With so much rain I have been picking the blooms and having the benifit of these beauties in the house
|Beauties aren't they|
I can't say I have been in the best of spirits and there comes a time when you just need to get out and do something a bit different. I used to do most of the gardening, but these days it's been handed over to Mr. D, still I needed to do some heavy digging. I don't really enjoy weeding, but give me a patch of ground, a garden fork, and I am a happy bunny.
|Clay soil, and full of clay....heavy work!|
|down and dirty!|
|shirt off, must be warm!|
There has been a bit of crafting going on, albeit only knitting. I finished my first shawl in The Shawl Society over at Ravelry and a finish to the scarf that I started after a trip to Purlwise, the yarn shop at Kimbolton, (I'm not sure if the pattern has a name), It seemed if you bought the yarn you could have the pattern as a freebie Yeah!
|Nice easy knit|
|Looks good, but not practical|
|RESULT ...... for the double pointed needles, and I think it will work for the interchangeable|
I expect the next time I see you it will be to show you this months Mini Mania Challenge.....goodness where does the time go????
